Farm walk notes:

No rain for the week! Grass growth has come back a bit with 2 or 3 frosts. Still on grass only. We have the drys and autumn calvers following milkers to tidy up as we have no mower on the property. All new grass paddocks got a graze this week which is great with minimal damage. Clover in the new grass looks fantastic- the result of shallower sowing with a roller drill instead of with rye in direct drill?
